If I have a strong prescription, can I get the lenses thinner and lighter?
Yes, you can get high index lenses to help with the weight and the thickness. There are many different levels of high index lenses to choose from. Also, careful frame selection can minimize the lenses thickness.

Can I have new lenses put in my current frames?

What is the best way to clean my eyeglasses?
We sell special cleaning cloths and lens-cleansing solution to help you keep your glasses clean. You should also wash your glasses once or twice a month in warm, soapy water. Be sure to rinse well and dry them with a soft cloth.

What are progressive lenses?
Progressive lenses are bifocals with no lines. The lenses have seamless transitions from near, immediate, to distant vision.

Can I get glasses that turn into sunglasses when I go outside?
Yes, we carry the latest leading brand names in photochromic lenses (you may be most familiar with the popular brand, Transitions™, which we also carry). Photochromic lenses rely on UV light to change from light to dark. The level of change will depend on the amount of UV light. These are not meant to replace sunglasses used for driving. The UV protector on your windshield blocks most of the UV light which will prevent photochromic lenses from darkening correctly.

Do you carry contacts?
Yes, we carry most major brands of contacts, including colored contact lenses.

Do I need to have my eyes examined by your doctor for contacts?
Yes, since the contact lenses exam requires certain eye measurements, we require our doctor to do the exam. Contacts may take more than one fitting to determine the best and most comfortable fit.

Do you have prescription sports goggles?
Yes, we carry Rec-Specs Sports Goggles than can be fitted with almost any prescription.
